The 4th Industrial Revolution May Change the Way We Are Connected to Ourselves
The revolution we will be facing in the next few years will fundamentally transform the way we live, work and how we’re “connected to each-other.” Even more remarkably, the 4th industrial revolution may change the way we are connected to ourselves, it may change our feelings in the way we perceive.. us.
Most of the basic issues will be about electronics, about machines, about the future of what we call Artificial Intelligence. Are these machines going to make us slaves of their abilities? Will they be a danger to human beings? Are human beings going into a dark hole of their own creation because they made machines that turned against humanity?
Simply put, we don’t know yet. What’s coming in the future is not predictable by anything we have experienced in the past. The evolution of AI circuitries, the evolution of tech itself over the last decade won’t necessarily apply to the evolution of the next decades.
It’s conceivable that systemic paradigm shifts will emerge in parallel with, or even guided by, the evolution of our consciousness, with consciousness that changes the expectations of what we want. We may therefore witness surprises and major innovations in technology with unprecedented dynamics. A main focus in the future of electronics will be health technologies. Electronics will be directed inwards, with respect to human beings. Electronics will merge with the human ability to promote self-healing. In this sense, we may pave the way to a technology that will be benevolent and help us to heal. So far, technology has been pointing outwards, and it has been based upon the development and use of something that accomplishes something. This is an outward evolution.
Now, emerging technologies are helping contribute to an inward evolution. Electronics, machineries, algorithms are going inward and delivering a deeper understanding of the human body. This goes beyond creating even the smallest robot (i.e a nano-robot). In the very near future we will be able to develop an intelligence from AI that in itself will be an evolving form of sentience of the human that is involved in the healing, in self-healing.
Some of these applications are already being developed by ÉlpisÉremo, a leader in cutting-edge medical research and development of precision devices. What if we can take a piece of a stem cell that is a “code” of, for example, her healthy status, her ability to cope with a hostile environment (i.e. oxidative stress, hypoxia…), or a code of her ability to differentiate along the most complex fates, such as the heart, the brain and so on?
What if we use that piece of stem cell code, that is you, that has a consciousness of you, a benevolence of you, that would not hurt you, to cure a form of disease that has not been possible to treat so far, even with the most advanced pharmacological or surgical interventions? That piece of a stem cell code will go into a machine, a MINAR (Multi-frequency Inducers of Nanoarchitechtonics Reprogramming), but it won’t be a robot, a machine anymore. It will be the sublimation of an intelligent part of you (i.e. the code you harvested from a differentiating stem cell) into an actuator that will use a part of you to treat you and regenerate damaged tissue. It will be the way you “talk” with that part of you (the code) which is interactively delivered from the “machine.” This will change your self-perception, through the disease up to a self-healing path.
This is the re-merging of Physics with Biology. The Biology itself entails Physics: they have been separated for too long, and now they will finally rejoin into a human being. It’s like saying that the consciousness of that cell is guiding the rest of a bio-field in diseased tissue to promote its regeneration. We are indeed at the cusp of a new connective revolution incorporating the synchronistic interchange of who we are and what we are able to become. The future beckons...
